Kathy Griffin Breaks Her Silence on Giuliana Rancic/Zendaya Controversy
Kathy was asked if she would be under fire if she made the same joke, to which she replied, “Probably not. But I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her.”
“Don’t have anyone write you jokes or even suggest jokes for you on ‘Fashion Police.’ You have enough great insider gossip from actually being ON the red carpet. That’s what fans want to hear the next day. Just talk and be yourself,” Kathy said about the advice she gave Giuliana. “Here’s the best I can give you: I will make my Miley Cyrus jokes as long as people want to laugh at them…but there is a chasm of difference between making a joke about Miley Cyrus wearing duct tape over her nipples out in public (which I think is totally fair game) and simply looking at a photo of her on a red carpet and saying she is ugly or a bad singer or pathetic or something like that.”
She also addressed if Kelly Osbourne‘s exit had anything to do with Giuliana‘s comments.
“Jesus, I don’t know! Sometimes she seemed very upset at the merely seven tapings of ‘Fashion Police’ we did together…I can tell you this: I adore that family. I’ve spent the most time with Sharon. She is the real deal. Love her! Kelly came to my house a couple of times when Joan was in the hospital and we were consoling each other. I can tell you there was genuine love there. Oh, and of course, Ozzy is amazing,” Kathy said.
